Motivation and scope?[edit]

Apologies if this has been discussed elsewhere, but what is the motivation for this template? The fact that Article I is so broad means that this template is ginormous and always growing.

After that, what is its scope? Is the ambition really to put this massive thing at the bottom of every article on a case law regarding Article I? If so, is there a reason why they should all be one template rather than a template per clause, if that?

How does this improve on categories? lethargilistic (talk) 04:01, 18 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Lethargilistic: Motivation is to coordinate all Supreme Court decisions related to Article I of the United States Constitution. While I would agree that it is quite large and will continue to grow, that only means that the template should be broken up by section and only by clause if the case law is long enough. It would improve on categories because they would be more consolidated. The Article III case law category now includes 22 categories including some that it previously did not include. -- CommonKnowledgeCreator (talk) 19:10, 24 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@CommonKnowledgeCreator: I've started a discussion among WP:SCOTUS about case law navigation boxes generally. It's become clear that this discussion should be broader than one specific template of this type. I thought it would be unfair to you to leave you out of that loop. lethargilistic (talk) 22:55, 24 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
